nitrousoxide10, thanks for the reply! I'll keep that in mind. Lutro0's guides are very nice, though I must admit that sleeving sure looks complicated for someone who's never done it before, especially with new parts! Very informative.
Branish, I've looked through the first 228 pages of this thread now and counting... Still no sign of a detailed enough guide for the LED light power button mod I'm looking for. This
is the closest "walkthrough" that I have found so far... I still find myself starving for more details though because I've never done this before. I just want to make sure I know exactly what to do before I start hacking apart my new stuff.
GoodInk, thank you too for the response! I checked out that LED myth link but it still leaves me somewhat puzzled. You mention that the button would work with modding - do you happen to know where I might find details about modding the fans to work with the LED power button? I had already seen the link to modelersbrand.com while browsing the site but appreciate the tip for sure! I'll definitely look into those.
So I've checked and found that the R4 is 3-pin, so it can connect to the mobo. I'm still not sure if it will allow for automatic control straight from the mobo. The downside to it being 3 pin is that I have no idea how I'd mod it to work properly with the LED light power button.
I've read that someone used AC Ryan Blackfire fans since they came with separate LED connectors but I haven't found any recent information about these fans yet...
Alternatively, I have found these fans quite pleasing to the eye and was wondering if they’d be any easier to make the LED light power button work with these instead:Phobya Nano-2G 12 PWM Silent 1500rpm Red LED Double Blade (120x120x25mm)
Another thing to note is that I’d love to be able to control all LED/light sources within the case from the LED light power button… Fans, LED strips, whatever else.
Any help you guys could give me with regards to that LED light power button mod would be really appreciated - it's all that's stopping me from placing my order. I would normally check myself but I'm having difficulty finding the time to browse through all the good stuff on this site from work.
I think I'm coming down with modder fever. Soooo many nice rigs in this thread and I can't wait to start on my very own!
